It’s Friday! And it’s September! And my family is all on a 4 day weekend! Life is good and I am all smiles today. On to some Friday Favorites!
1. The state fair!
Kind of on a whim, we decided to both take off today and head down to the Minnesota state fair. You guys, the food at the state fair is unreal. I actually haven’t been since seven years ago (I went with my roommates the weekend we moved in, and I was sad because Mike had just left to go home after coming to visit me for the first time). There are so many fried things I want to try, and I am just so excited. We are leaving Lincoln with my parents and braving bringing Jackson with us, which means a trip into the petting zoo is likely in order. Fingers crossed he behaves!
2. Fall Jackets
Now that fall weather is totally upon us here in Minnesota, I am on the hunt for a cute new jacket. I stumbled across this bomber jacket at American Eagle, and think it is the most adorable transitional piece from summer to early fall. I cannot get enough of all of the blush colored things, and this jacket totally fits the bill.
I received my haul of Old Navy pants this week, and was so excited to try them on! I ordered five pairs, all in the same size, and three of them fit for me to keep. How annoying is it that the exact same pants in the exact same size don’t fit the same? I digress. One of the pairs I kept was the jeggings in the photo below. I paired them with the famous (and my favorite) tunic and some nude flats, and had the perfect business casual look for a fall day. I am not lying when I literally wore one of these tunics in a different color every.single.day. this week. They are so perfect for work or play, I am obsessed!
4. Pumpkin Spice
Caribou Coffee (the Starbucks of the midwest) launched the PSL early for perks members, so I already enjoyed TWO of them this week. And both days it was breezy and totally felt like fall. I can’t believe how a season can make a person so happy, but it does, and I know I am not alone!
5. Baby Giggles
Oh my gosh you guys, Lincoln just laughs all of the time, and it is seriously the sweetest thing ever. Basically, he is either laughing hysterically, or crying hysterically. Not much middle of the road with this guy 😉 But he is ticklish, loving, and just the most precious little man. He is happiest in the mornings, and my favorite time of the day as of late is when I am getting ready and he is talking to himself in his bassinet. When I finally go over and say good morning to him, he gets so excited he doesn’t even know how to handle himself. My sweet boy.
I hope you all have a fabulous Labor Day weekend, with lots of sunshine, a few adult cocktails, and soaking up every last bit of summer before we official enter the most wonderful four months of the year!
